Our mission

iDAKTO makes digital identity easier to create, use and share.

Our solutions are deployed globally across governments and corporate institutions leveraging technology to safeguard private data and elevate the user experience. Today, we empower 200M users with a digital ID of legal value that ensures secure and convenient access to thousands of online services.

iDAKTO Solutions outstand themselves by offering a complete integration of the digital identity lifecycle, from registration to online identity verification. Our products ensure a high level of trust, relying on an innovative technological base to secure the elements of a digital identity.


Digital interactions require trust. We created iDAKTO in 2019 to enable simple, secure interactions between users and service providers, in a digital world that evolves constantly. 

iDAKTO was born with an innovative mind. Our work is rooted in cybersecurity. From there, we are going much further: our mission is to create global solutions to identify users, authenticate service providers and their customers, and enable an interaction that is both easy and reliable. We ensure the whole lifecycle of the interaction, based on safely identifying people, organizations, or devices.

Our identity contract enables trusted digital interactions according to iDAKTO’s 3 core values:


Digital identity is an opportunity for everyone.
It has to be inclusive. Whether they are digital natives or not, all citizens have a right to easily access private and public digital services.


Security first: secure interactions are our priority.
Our platform protects every user from identity theft and keeps personal data safe from prying eyes.


Privacy is non-negotiable.
Quick and easy interactions should not rely on allowing  commercial use of our personal data. Confidentiality is at the core of our method: we systematically ensure user consent; we reduce data transfer to the relevant minimum; we apply international standards and General Data Protection Regulation requirements.
